Feel free to call me shallow (actually, no, don’t!) but I love a coloured brush. They’re just more joy-giving than something that resembles squirrel tails. The new Kiko The Artist collection is all of the brights and includes the Artist Powder Face Brush above (£13.90) and the Artist Foundation Face Brush (£13.90) in the main picture.
There’s also a lime-tipped, double ended Artist Eye Brush (£11.90). The brushes are synthetic (thankfully) and while you could never put them up against some of the serious pro-brushes, I have found the Powder Face Brush perfectly easy and effective. I haven’t quite braced myself enough to dip that gorgeous red tip into foundation, but I will. The blush that you see is the Blending Wave Multi Color Blush that comes out on skin a very pretty pink. There is another shade but mine was a casualty of the post!
It’s side by side with the Glowing Pearl Cushion Highlighter (£8.90).
The highlighter has a small cushion tip so you can add little dabs and blend but really you need a brush to blend on cheek bones – the cushion won’t do it as effectively. The effect is translucent-pearly, but also quite sparkly – it’s not the kind of natural glow highlighter, but it’s really pretty if that’s your chosen effect.
